Crop Trick

One of the questions I got on my YouTube (click here to subscribe!) was how to layer with a crop top. A maxi dress is the perfect pairing. By layering a crop top over it, you get a maxi skirt! Now, there are two important tricks to making this work: 1) Your top should be a thicker fabric than your dress and 2) One piece has to be loose, the other on the tighter side. If both your top and dress are roomy it will add extra weight. For this outfit, I played with mixed prints by adding a bold clutch then added statement earrings to make it wearable from day into night!
